Since we come later to these things than everybody else, and since everything there is to say about the singing/conducting has no doubt been thoroughly ruminated, here are the remaining key points, via the Encore @ OperaMall Millionplex:
Playing next door: Thor in 3D IMAX
Requisite plot add-on to account for sound-bleed from same: "I remember every detail, the Germans wore grey, you wore blue."
Best bit of haberdashery onstage: Peter Rose's tie
Best nail color: Sarah Connolly
Best injection-molded hairstyle: Barry Banks
Best bit of furniture: that sofa, so 20's, and yet so 70's.
Best bit of serendipitous irony: La Roche's jeremiad on the sorry state of Drama amid subterranean rumblings from Ken Branagh's Marvel Comics franchise debut.
